Crash Annual 2018 Smashes its Kickstarter Target

A Kickstarter campaign for a new issue of Crash magazine was launched in the past 24 hours and has already surpassed its target goal. This means that a 99th issue of the classic ZX Spectrum gaming magazine will be published in annual form just in time for Christmas 2017.

Sword of Iffrit

Sword of Iffrit New Atari 2600 Game in Beta

New Atari 2600 games seem to be falling out of the sky. Most of them are mock-ups only featuring no gameplay and certainly not running on actual hardware (old school limitations suck). One rather interesting new game that is currently in beta that caught my attention is Sword of Iffrit. This appears to be an action adventure game with some light role-playing elements and it is for the Atari 2600 console.

Noah's Ark NES

New Kickstarter for Noah’s Ark on Nintendo NES and Sega Genesis

We don’t cover a lot of Kickstarter news here on RGM for a reason. I don’t speak for everyone writing for RGM but me personally, I am a fan of Wisdom Tree. They announce new games then finish and release them. Amazing concept but so many in the retro gaming world need to learn that trick themselves. One such announcement is Noah’s Ark coming to the NES and Super 3D Noah’s Ark coming to the Sega Genesis. Since this Kickstarter started some interesting additions have been added.

Unholy Night SNES Fighting Game

Unholy Night, New Super Nintendo Fighter, Available Now on Amazon

Previously we discussed Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter, and now we can bring you news that it is available on Amazon. The first thing I can tell you about this news is that Unholy Night is unlike most retro releases we see. The publisher is not using artificial scarcity to drive sales for instance. Also, this is a 100% brand new game developed by industry veterans, former SNK staff members.

Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition Released on iOS

Capcom have just released Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition for iOS platforms such as iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The latest edition of the long running classic one-on-one fighter promises more options and updates to previously released editions. Fans of the franchise–which kicked off big time with the release of Street Fighter II in the arcades back in 1991–will be interested to see how this latest game fares on the portable devices.

Total Recall NES

Five Gaming Licenses that Missed the Mark

Licensing is a staple of gaming. It has been since the Atari 2600 days. Licensing is going nowhere as companies realize they can halfheartedly work on a game, slap a license on it, and expect to at least make back their investment if not a tidy profit to boot. I have collected five licensed games here that completely missed the mark in some way. As a bonus, I mention what they should have gone with for each license.

Mega Maker

Mega Maker, Answer to Mario Maker, Releases This Week

Nintendo hit a good vibe with fans when they released Mario Maker. It was goodwill and fun for everyone involved. Now a fan of Mega Man has taken it upon himself to make a similar program for Mega Man. This is why I love indie developers. They push the envelope in ways that mainstream developers either don’t see or don’t care about.

Super Mario Odyssey

Nintendo Removes Gaming Staple from Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has pushed the envelope with Mario over the years. They did this many times – such as using the character in other genres from what gamers knew him for. From racing in Mario Kart to being a physician in Dr. Mario, the iconic character has pushed boundaries in many genres, not just action adventure. The upcoming Super Mario Odyssey is going to push another boundary, one that is kind of weird.

Mazinger Z: Death Match Short Film by Daniele Spadoni

Okay, I must admit, I am a huge fan of giant robot anime. From Robotech to Transformers – if it had giant robots in it, I was probably plopped down in front of the television to watch it. This was my childhood, shoot it is sometimes my Saturday mornings as an adult. I never outgrew giant robot cartoons. That is why it is weird to me that I have never heard of Mazinger Z. My friend Daniele Spadoni recently made available a short film based on Mazinger Z and he sent me a link to his film recently. If you are familiar with Daniele’s work, then you know this is going to be quality, and it is. Video embed after the jump.
